Detroit Auto Show: The 2019 Ford Ranger is a high tech little truck

2019 Ford Ranger EMBARGOED DO NOT USE

Ford roared back into the midsize pickup market with the introduction of the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger.

The new-for-2018 Ford Ranger looks largely unchanged from the model already on sale in Australia - the body is the same since launch seven years ago. US sales are up 83 percent since 2014 as a new generation of midsize truck buyers seek more maneuverable, fuel-efficient pickups.

The new Ranger is midsized and has a new grill and hood-line.

"If I had the capital for a new pickup, an F-150 would be the first place I'd look", Orians said.

More information and a view of the Ranger's new athletic look are now available online at the official Ford website.

Powering the new vehicle will be a 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine which will be paired with a 10-speed auto transmission. Speaking off, there are XL, XLT, and Lariat trim levels, along with Chrome and Sport visual appearance packages.


Midsize truck fans can now start their dance of joy. It has been modified to pass US safety standards and suit customer preferences. “When you pair that with its 10-speedtransmission, youve got one of the most versatile, powerful and efficient powertrains in the segment.”. The FX4 Off-Road Package provides additional trail capability with off-road-tuned shocks, all-terrain tires, a frame-mounted heavy-gauge steel front bash plate, frame-mounted skid plates and FX4 badging.

At this time no fuel economy projections have been released by Ford, but with the combination aluminum and steel construction, the numbers should prove to be positive. It also has a Terrain Management System featuring five driving modes: Normal; Grass; Sand; Gravel and Snow; and Mud and Ruts. It is available as FX2 with two-wheel drive or FX4 with four-wheel drive. The Ranger XLT and Lariat trims will come standard with lane departure warning and lane-keep assist.

The Nissan Navara, Mitsubishi Triton and Isuzu D-Max are also due for minor model-year updates. Orians also suspects that while the Ranger has sentimental value for some drivers, most will prefer something more capable and comfortable.

Inside, the Ranger is pretty civilized, offering leather upholstery, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen that hosts the Sync 3 infotainment system, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Also 4G Wi-Fi hotspot for as many as 10 devices and a B&O Play premium sound system are also going to be available. Pedestrian detection and adaptive cruise control are standard on Lariat.

Our big question is whether, as with the "other" Ranger, there'll be a Ranger Raptor version for the US.
